September 30, 2014:
I re-sheet mulched the middle 4 x 4 bed, using half-composted straw full of worm casings, food scraps, salt hay, leaves, and 4" of soil dug from the original bed and from the 4 x 16 bed. Watered each layer.
Purchased organic, locally grown garlic from Heron Pond Farm Stand, supplied from Wild Miller Gardens in Lee, NH.
Planted bulbs 6" apart, in rows 6" apart.
Watered well, and mulched with 5-6" of salt hay.
